Senior Portraits | Kitty Hawk Pier

Outer Banks

We had the most beautiful evening for Baylee’s senior portraits at the Kitty Hawk Pier, the waves were rolling in and were so pretty crashing against the legs of the pier!  I love that she was happy to play in the ocean, a trash the dress session along with her senior portraits!

The red dress really stood out against the blue water, this is nothing like any of her friends at school in West Virginia will have for their portraits!  It’s such a fun and exciting time, graduating from high school and weighing all the options the world has to offer, a bit overwhelming as I recall but the first time when everything isn’t laid out in front of you.

Corolla Underwater Portraits

I had the best time photographing this funfabulous family on the beach and underwater in Corolla, NC.  Their mom, Samantha, is so creative! She brought so many fun props including pirate swords, shields, a surfboard and the cutest outfits for the kiddos!  I love how Noah was duck diving in the pool, talented little fella!

The next morning they were going to the Pirate Ship in Manteo so the foam swords got them super excited for their adventure!

Baby Fiona

Cheryl, the owner of the adorable Roanoke Bungalows, invited me over to photograph her son, Cameron and his beautimus wifey and their brand new beebster.  Everything was so elegant, soft and beautiful!  The setting couldn’t have had more gorgeous light, flowers or greenery, not to mention the prettiest family you could ask for!

Sweet Fiona wore little ruffle bottoms and a big pink bow which made my heart smile.  She had a head full of beautiful brown hair which stuck straight up once the bow came off, adorable!

Family Beach Portraits | Kitty Hawk

Beach portraits while on OBX vacation

I met this family from Maryland this week at their beach home in Southern Shores for family beach portraits.  This was little Victoria’s first trip to the beach and she was unsure about the sand.  We see this a lot.  Kids are just starting to get around on their own and then get on the unsure footing of the sand …and do not like it one bit!  It’s kind of like putting a cat into a bath tub!

We suggest getting them a little used to it before our scheduled session.  But, like I said -we’re used to it, so we found Victoria a little beach access that she felt comfortable on to climb and play for a few portraits alone.

Thanks for coming to play! Xx!


Corolla family portraits | Ragan Family

Corolla family portraits


It has been a few years since I got to play with the Ragan family.  Our last shoot was on the beach in Nags Head and this year we came to the Whalehead Club, the kiddos have grown up so much!!  We did lots of family groupings with the Whalehead Club and the Lighthouse as our background but here are some of my favorite fun photos. I like to try to capture the kids being kids in between our groupings and these kiddos had fun all afternoon, running, looking at crabs, they saw a snake… And of course we played with bubbles!
